Organic Red Snail Black Tea is selected the Guangxi Bai Hao tea species as raw materials and made by a series of traditional processes. It is generally processed in the same way as other black teas, but adding an extra step to roll the leaves into snail shape. Brewed with 95℃ hot water, the fruity, nectar aroma of the Red Snail Black Tea is the first thing to greet you. Going deeper, it presents a very beautiful bright orange color and also gives a sweet, soft and mellow mouthfeel without the bitterness. Whether you're sipping it directly or mixing with milk, this organic red snail black tea is a great choice for afternoon tea.

Tea Garden

Yaming Bai Hao tea garden covers a total area of about 1,000 mu, all in a mountainous area between 500 and 1200m above sea level. The garden is surrounded by woods and often shrouded in clouds and mist during dawn and at night, which prevent the majority of the harmful effects of UV rays on the growth of the tea plants. To ensure tea quality, chemical pesticides and fertilizers are strictly forbidden here - and based on this, Yaming tea garden earned its organic authorization in 2015.

Origin

China is the hometown of tea production, while Guangxi is the birthplace of Baihao tea itself. These trees are commonly grown high in Guangxi mountains at areas between 800 and 1500m. The average annual precipitation here is 1500-2000mm, and the temperature varies between 16-23℃ on average.

Tea Bush

It is said that the Baihao variety is the only one versatile enough for producing all of the six basic tea types - green, white, black, yellow, oolong, and pu-erh.

This tree belongs to the large-leaf species, with elastic, tender yellowish-green leaves that contain an abundance of polyphenols, amino acids, and pectin. One test shows that Baihao leaves contain 3.36% amino acids, 35.6% polyphenols, 4.91% caffeine, and 182.92 mg/g catechinic acid.

In 1964 a large number of wild Baihao trees were discovered growing in Lingyun County, Guangxi, with the largest measured at 9.96m in height with a trunk diameter of 25cm, and a canopy 6.38m wide.
